Canada return to Churchill final

Chauncey O'Toole

Canada reached their second successive Churchill Cup final with a five-try 34-18 victory over Russia.

Having beaten Italy A 26-12 in their opening game, the North Americans sank Russia with 19 unanswered second-half points to overcome a half-time deficit of three.

Justin Mensah-Coker, Connor Trainor, Ander Munro, Chauncey O'Toole and Matt Evans all crossed the whitewash to ensure Canada will await England Saxons or Tonga in the final on June 19 at Sixways.
